Jukunay's story

Jukunay is 56 years old, a widow and raised seven children. She started her business in animal husbandry 20 years ago with an initial sum of 3,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her persistent work, Jukunay's business yields about 5,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk and meat products. She also works on 3.12 hectares of land, where she grows potatoes and barley. In the summer, Jukunay and her family travel to the pastures ("jailoo") of the mountain lake Son-Kol, where they set up a "yurt" - national felt house - where tourists and visiting guests can stop. In order to further develop her animal husbandry business, Jukunay requested a loan in the sum of 120,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase three bulls and ten sheep. She plans to invest the profits into further increasing livestock headcount.
